If you haven’t noticed, the real estate market in the Atlanta Metro Area has been changing dramatically in the last 6 months. It has gone from a buyer’s market to a seller’s market due to the inventory shortage of available homes for sale at auction or on the MLS.
- Hedge Funds are stepping all over each other purchasing REOs and foreclosures and are running up the prices.
- Those who frequently buy at the courthouse auctions are now being routinely out bid by kids with cell phones and iPads who are receiving their bidding instructions from people we never see, who are sitting in front of multiple computer screens hundreds or thousands of miles away from the action.
- With a massive increase in the number of investors bidding on the courthouse steps, along with a significant decrease in the number of properties being cried, real estate values have soared while investors’ profit margins have plummeted.
- Listed houses are often put under contract for well above the list price within 24 hours of hitting the MLS with multiple backup offers in place.
With all these rapid changes going on, our June Meeting is the perfect time and place to get together and examine alternative investment strategies and marketing strategies to find deals. At the June Meeting, we’ll have a Panel Discussion with Don DeRosa, Russ Hiner, Bill Cook, Kim Cook and Dorsie Boddiford, 5 active real estate investors, about this sudden shift and how we can best capitalize on what’s working now.
Bill Cooks says “It’s obvious the Cheese Has Moved. The question is: Where did the cheese go? The best way to find the answer to this all-important question is to go to the frontlines. Our efforts have shown us where the cheese is TODAY – and which deal structures are working best NOW! Do you want to be the first investor in your area to learn this secret? Join us at June’s meeting!”
So come out and join us at the Atlanta REIA Meeting on Monday, June 3rd at 5PM at the Crown Plaza Ravinia Hotel in Atlanta to learn more about the changing real estate market and how to change your investing strategies and tactics to adapt to these rapidly changing times. We hope to see you there!
